Ecology and Evolution of Soil Microbial Community

This group is interested in studying the dynamic and function of soil microbial community in related with plant disease. They use MSI resources for analyzing high-throughput amplicon sequencing data of soil fungi and bacteria. They are now using the Mesabi system for these analyses, including sequence QC, filtering, dereplication, OTU clustering, and taxonomic assignment. In the near future, the researchers will also analyze whole-genome sequencing data and transcriptome data, which will require storage and computing resources at MSI.
